Senate Approves Lankford’s Bipartisan Resolution Honoring Public Servants Working to Overcome COVID-19

WASHINGTON, DC –The US Senate today unanimously approved a bipartisan resolution from Senator James Lankford (R-OK) and  Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), Chairman and Ranking Member of the Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management Subcommittee, that honors public servants in Oklahoma and across the nation and their work to overcome COVID-19 by designating May 3rd – May 9th as Public Service Recognition Week. The bipartisan resolution commends public servants at all levels of government —including Oklahoma servicemembers and government employees—for their contributions to Oklahoma and the United States.

 

“Public Service Recognition Week gives us an opportunity to thank the countless government federal employees across Oklahoma and the nation,” said Lankford. “In the midst of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, we see those serving in our public healthcare, military, federal agencies, airports, post offices and other vital jobs that help our state and nation operate efficiently and continue to support their fellow Americans. We are tremendously grateful for federal workers and their commitment to serve. Today and every day, thank you for all you do to serve your neighbors. America could not succeed without you.”

 

“I’m proud the Senate came together across party lines today to honor Arizona’s public servants who care for our veterans, protect our borders, and deliver critical care for all Arizonans as we overcome the challenges from COVID-19,” said Sinema.
